Total 19 items

Coming to the end of the month and looking at this total, I felt like, it’s not great but it’s not nothing. Sometimes I have a slow month and it’s good to know at those times that decluttering is still on my mind and that I’ve taken the opportunity to get rid of a few things. What can also happen during these slow months is that I’m “marinating” certain items which I don’t immediately feel I can get rid of. After they get put on the mental watch list, it quite often happens that after months of prevaricating, I wake up one morning feeling like, this item is completely useless to me and can definitely go.
